The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Denver Broncos 10-6 on Sunday and a few players are reaping the rewards of that. Safety Eric Berry is up for NFL rookie of the week while running back Jamaal Charles is up for the FedEx Ground player of the week.

Berry lead the team with seven tackles and two passes defensed. He also got involved in a mini-scuffle with the Broncos players so you know KC Chiefs fans are down with his plays.

Also up for rookie of the week: running back LeGarrette Blount of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, cornerback Joe Haden of the Cleveland Browns, running back Chris Ivory of the New Orleans Saints, and linebacker Sean Lee of the Dallas Cowboys.
